Textbook Problem

Use the Heisenberg uncertainly principle to estimate the range of a weak nuclear decay involving a graviton.

To determine

The range of a weak nuclear decay involving a graviton.

Explanation

Formula used:

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle is given by,

  ΔE=hΔt

The range of the graviton is given by,

  d=cΔt

The speed of light is given by,

  c=λf

Calculation:

Graviton is mass-less and so the energy of a graviton can be considered as hf.

The speed of light can be represented as λf.

The time take by graviton is calculated as,

  ΔE=hΔt
